Sayin' What I'm Thinkin'


Artist: Lainey Wilson
Label: Broken Bow Records
RRP: £13.99
Release Date: 19 February 2021

Lainey Wilson's debut country LP, Sayin’ What I’m Thinkin’, is released via Broken Bow Records. It including her current single, 'Things a Man Oughta Know'...

If you're looking for a country album that speaks to the youth, that repositions the genre as a cool, progressive movement that a new generation can get behind... you won't find any of that here.

Lainey Wilson delivery 12 (37 min, 57 sec) traditional "Good old boys" country songs that hark back to the like of Dolly Parton. While memorable and enjoyable enough, I couldn't help feeling that I'd heard it all before - and I'm not even a fan of the genre.

Subjects tackled range from your typical drinking problem; religion; and being as good or better than the males she keeps company with.

It's not poorly written or performed, far from it, it's just that there's little here to make you sit up and take notice.
